Abstract: We report a case of persistent intertrigo in an adult, eventually diagnosed as cutaneous Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH). It is known that LCH has a predilection for intertriginous areas, however purely cutaneous disease as in our case, is uncommon and usually other systems are affected. Following the report, literature of similar cases is reviewed to determine possible outcomes and to decide on the best possible treatment options.
